Securing a table at Masa is tough; the New York restaurant only serves for three hours during dinner and one hour during lunch. That means you need to be ready to give at least 48 hours’ notice if you want to relinquish your table or reduce your party. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant famous for luxury fish and high-quality sushi charges $200 per person for cancelled reservations or reduced parties — a hefty fee you’ll want to avoid.
Masa confirms all reservations with a credit card, so if you cancel, you’ll be charged automatically; parties of five are required to put down a 50 percent deposit one week prior to a reservation. Reservations and cancellations can be made by calling the restaurant directly. The reservation line is open Monday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 8 p.m.
